Porcupines have soft hair, but on their back, sides, and tail it is usually mixed with sharp quills. These quills typically lie flat until a porcupine is threatened, then leap to attention as a persuasive deterrent. Porcupines cannot shoot them at predators as once thought, but the quills do detach easily when touched. Many animals come away from a porcupine encounter with quills protruding from their own snouts or bodies.
Quills have sharp tips and overlapping scales or barbs that make them difficult to remove once they are stuck in another animal’s skin. Porcupines grow new quills to replace the ones they lose.
As funny as this sounds, there are human porcupines and most of us are unconsciously changing to porcupines
Why I’m I saying this; we’re all calm in nature until somebody “touches” us, then our “quills” come off. Mind you, quills don’t come off when they get attached to another animal’s skin
How do you detach your quills?
Is it at the slightest provocation or you wait till the right time and hit where it hurts?
Unfortunately, you don’t even feel better after releasing your quills, or you do?
And the nicest thing is the quills keep growing so think about it, do you want to be a porcupine for the rest of your life?
Releasing quills forever and pushing people away like I’m guilty of?
Or drawing people closer and sharing love?
Choice is yours LIVE, LOVE AND BE YOU # I see food so I run …..Shalom.
